California will restrict state-funded and sponsored travel to Oklahoma in response to a controversial adoption bill signed by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin last month.
A news release from the office of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra states the restriction will go into effect June 22. A California law passed in 2017 "prohibits state-funded and state-sponsored travel to states with laws that authorize or require discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression."
Let us know what you think about this on the FOX23 Facebook page:
According to Becerra's office, the restriction on travel applies to "California state agencies, departments, boards, authorities and commissions, including an agency, department, board, authority, or commission of the University of California, the Board of Regents of the University of California, and the California State University."
Other states on the list include Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas.
